Lean Business Solutions is a values-led company, with Inspiring Improvement as the culture and ethos that lies at the heart of everything we do.
Our aim is to deliver high quality services that make a lasting positive impact on our customers’ businesses.
Coaching and Mentoring
Our team has extensive experience of building robust and successful management teams via their coaching and mentoring skills, developed in both their current consulting and previous operational roles.
They are able to relate to scenarios from board room to operator level, allowing them to identify and support the needs of your business to achieve its desired results.
From one to one coaching to team development, we create and deliver innovative and challenging programmes that really will Inspire Improvement in your people and your business.
Making a Difference to Your Bottom Line
Lean Business Solutions customers experience real bottom line financial improvements from Lean / Six Sigma programmes that range from factory re-layouts, supply change optimisation programmes, process change improvements (S.M.E.D.) and quality problem resolution. Because our consultants have implemented these process improvements for real in their previous roles, they are able to leverage their knowledge to engage with your people to deliver bottom line improvements.
Engaging and enabling your people to identify and address the opportunities that exist is our mission as a business.
I’m very grateful to have had an opportunity to know Kerry Cochran through Lean Business Solution.
We have known each other since 2010 where I attended my first Green Belt education. Today I am certified Black Belt through Lean Business Solution.
For me, Kerry is more than just close friend. He became an effective mentor, with his wisdom and professionally skills guided me while maintaining a friendly and supportive relationship.
Without your mentoring I would never be where I am today in my career.
Professional Mentoring Skills in Sweden
I completed the Six Sigma black belt training with Colin around 8 years ago, since that time Colin has continued to act as a mentor supporting me to develop a culture of continuous improvement which has led to vastly improved productivity. Colin’s extensive industry experience enabled him to quickly develop an understanding of our culture and values resulting in tailored support to both me as an individual and the company as a whole. He has continued to be a valuable sounding board at critical points in both the business and my own development.

A Mentor Supporting me to Develop a Culture of Continuous Improvement
“Kerry acts as a Coach rather than external consultant, he has accompanied the growth of the business. You don’t speak Chinese, but sometimes you know more about ourselves than we do, as we are in the process; (example, resistance of change when the organization decide to make change ???); you help us to point out the direction when we get stuck. We are glad to work with you, and confident we could be better together, even facing so many challenges” Vick Xu
Coaching is all Part of the Service
“The course is online at the moment due to Covid 19 but this doesn’t appear to be a detriment to the content, delivery or my progress through the modules; I have been tutored by Colin on a face to face course in the past and therefore can compare these two delivery methods. For me the online training is efficient and focused. The tutoring is clear and informative with course material easily shared on screen and backed up through email correspondence and any queries/questions have been answered swiftly. Connection has not been a problem and the regular weekly meetings have been easy to organise within my schedule. The online experience has provided a flexible way of learning, which Lean Business Solutions have harnessed effectively”.
Covid Safe Online Learning – Still as Good as Face to Face
The training approach from LBS made team members at every level feel comfortable and encouraged interaction. Positive feedback from the first few sessions increased participation on the subsequent training courses, helping us gain real traction. The activities on the courses – like the waste walks on the shop floor, really opened team members eyes to the opportunities around them. LBS have been an asset to Volvo Motherwell during this journey, they have experienced the process before and are able to offer help and support along the way – this has proven to be invaluable.
